The Road to Hershey is open as the state basketball playoffs have one round in the books.

Five teams, including four district champions, saw their season end and their time in the HSSN state rankings come to a close with opening-round losses over the weekend.

The biggest surprise was the No. 1 team in Class 6A, District 3 champion Central Dauphin, losing to Baldwin (13-10), the No. 5 team out of the WPIAL.

With the Rams knocked out, WPIAL champion North Allegheny moves up a spot to No. 1 in 6A, joining Chartiers Valley, North Catholic, Delone Catholic, Linden Hall and Jenkintown at the top of their classifications.

This week, the PIAA playoffs continue with second-round action Tuesday and Wednesday, followed by the state quarterfinals Friday and Saturday.
